YES -- it will be VERY noisy when MT and it will not be quiet when full

but you will not want it too full

Fit a sleeve on the bottom to cover the pick up screw area - attach a rod so you can cover or expose the pick up screw area for if you leave that much exposed -- it will pick up too much material and jam - you want to be able to allow it to pick up just enough -- not too much

Maybe Greg still has the picture of the control sleeve I sent him some time ago

My copy appears to have been stored in the twin towers. :D

Hi Sting
Thanks for the input would a pieces of plastic pipe work?
I can run a rod from outside the dog house to control the feed.
Thanks again for the inputs, I would have never guessed it would over feed the screw.
